Order a cup of joe, choose a tasty and sometimes offensively named doughnut or exchange wedding vows here! Even though this store is now bigger expect a line. The employees manage to keep the line moving but if it's really bad weather and you really want a Voodoo Doughnut head 10 minutes across the river to their 2nd location on NE Davis. Much bigger and you can dine-in.
Completely overrated. Anybody can dip a doughnut in cereal and serve it stale. They are not customer friendly and establishments are dirty. Cash only with a broken ATM is inconvenient. I'd much rather have a fresh doughnut, friendly service, clean establishment, and convenient way to pay for a better price. DONE WITH VOODOO.
Rude Employees to First Time Visitors – August 6th 3:30pm- We waited in line for 45 minutes in a hot unairconditioned room. Then when we were at the front of the line we were told they were going to shut the line down for a wedding. They said we were free to mingle and wait. At that time about 20 people left. My father who had been very excited to go to VooDoo donuts voiced his displeasure to me. IN RETURN the brown haired lady at the checkstand very rudely said, " Well the people who are getting married are right behind you and I am sure you really made their day." If VooDoo Donuts WAS A GOOD RESTAURANT WITH GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE then they would have posted a sign before you waited in line for 45 minutes and also apologized for the wait.
So atmostpher SUCKED and food OKAY. I think it would be better coming in a 2 AM when you are drunk and there are limited choices.
Just okay. Visit is for the atmosphere. – Donuts were ok. Tasted like Walmart donuts. When your in line you can see all the proccessed premade bulk products. Aparently they dont make anything fresh.
My wife and I enjoyed ourselves even with the wait in line.
Dont try the cake donuts. They were horrible. The raised donuts are better but tasted like walmart or albertsons donuts.
Like I said you go for the atmosphere not the food.
AWESOME!!!!! – I love voodoo dolls and old dirty bastard's! Any day, any time, anywhere. And yes, I'll take 2 more.
Just Awesome... – I took my friends from out of town to their downtown location and they were so impressed. Keep it up guys.
Cultural Phenomenon – These are definitely some of the best doughnuts around. Just the site of the big pink box at work and you know your morning is suddenly going to start a whole lot better. Voodoo Doughnut has grown into a cultural phenomenon in Portland, even making headlines in Food Network.
Only complaint is that the lines get oppressively long sometimes late at night downtown, and it seems like no one's in a hurry. I am! I want that doughnut!
Tangfastic doughnuts, cool shop, lines need to go! – This was quite hard, because I like the doughnuts so much, but I don't like waiting in huge lines. I know, I know. You're saying "so go to the Sandy location!" I did. Two separate times, and they were out of the doughnuts I like.
However, all of this can be forgiven for one of their Mango Tangos or Old Dirty Bastards. Very good and inventive place, to sum it up, but they really need to hire more people and do something about those frigging lines.
What is all the fuss about? – So since we moved to Portland we have seen SO much publicity for Voodoo and couldn't wait to go there. We even went later at night since that is what the advertise! Well the case was 1/2 empty, the line took forever (and it wasn't even that long) and the donuts were just ok. Actually a little dry. And I don't think we got anything incredibly strange, which is what they are known for! So an avg donut on the dry side???? Not worth the visit.
They don't take pennies. – I went to voodoo doughnuts the other day and it was pathetic. I usually don't write reviews, but I was compelled to after my experience. I was served by a rude woman with a self proclaimed dislike for doughnuts. She said" she just liked the job, not the doughnuts." So, if being rude to people is your thing, then this is the job for you. As for the doughnuts they were nothing special. Cool box, but poor quality doughnuts. Don't waste your time.
Our bill was 12.05, but they don't take pennies. That's right they don't take American Currency. When you are on television I guess you don't have to take change.
